Offered to the market for the first time in thirty years, Lorien Cottage presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a lovingly maintained classic period cottage in the heart of a popular village.
Of eighteenth century origins and built of coursed ironstone under a thatched roof, Lorien Cottage retains a wealth of period features including exposed stonework, beams, pine doors with cast iron bar and beam thumb latches and hinges and an inglenook fireplace with stone hearth.
Stone steps lead up to the property and a thatched canopy porch resting on stone corbels. An inner porch is a space for boots and coats before entering the sitting/dining room. These spaces together with the kitchen are all laid with attractive quarry tiles. Exposed timbers in the sitting/dining room have been painted to add height as well as to emphasise the focal point of this space; a wonderful inglenook fireplace with oak Bressumer beam fitted with a multi fuel burning stove.
Access to the gardens is gained through a multi pane glazed door at the far end of this room whilst the kitchen is off to the right via a stable style door. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of hardwood wall and base units and has space for white goods. There is a useful under stairs store cupboard in which the current owners have positioned a fridge/freezer.
A wooden staircase to the first floor leads from the sitting/dining room and up to two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom is well proportioned with space for a double bed and additional free standing furniture, whilst the second bedroom, also a double, located at the rear of the property, has a built in cupboard for storing items. The bathroom is fitted with a modern suite and has a airing cupboard in which the boiler can be located.
Externally the rear of the cottage is decorated with a pretty Wisteria and stone steps lead to a generous west facing rear garden. Mainly laid to lawn, there are deep flower beds planted with a variety of plants and shrubs as well as Bramley apple tree. There is a shed for storage and at the far end of the garden there is a secluded raised seating area over looking open fields.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
